I was thinking I should wait a while, let the shellac cure, and rub it out so it was shiny. But after asking around, I hear that it's a good idea to do that, say, about a month from now. Wait around for a month?!? So I just went ahead and strung it up tonight. It felt great to get away from the finishing stuff and get back into something that I have an easier time with: setup. I'll buff it shiny, later.
It has a light and balanced feel to it. And a warm voice. It definitely has that 30's Martin vibe, and some volume to it. And this is just the first day.
Good news, the truss rod works. It's a little tight, and I don't know why, but it works good.
I have more work to do, filing on the nut and saddle. But here it is.
(The cloudiness you are seeing in the pictures above and below is actually bone dust from the nut.)
